Rupali Ganguli is all smiles as she talks about the brand new venture she is going to feature in, NDTV Imagine's 'Ek Packet Umeed'. Back on the screen after taking a break post Big Boss, Ruplai's expectations are high from this show.
Already armed with a vast array of roles in her kitty, from being the ultimate vamp in Sanjivani to stingy housewife in Sarabhai vs Sarabhai to a reality show where she tried her level best to make everyone happy and ending up getting targeted for it, she has done it all.
'I play sunshine', the doe eyed actress laughs happily when asked about the kind of role she is playing this time. ' The show is about hope, as the name suggests. I play Sujata, a girl who is very optimistic,' she continues, ' and the show revolves around a bunch of women. The tag line says it all - bin rishtey ke rishtedar hai hum ( we are relatives inspite of not being related).'
It is a woman centric show? 'It's about woman, yes, but it's not about being anti men. The show is not against men. It will present the various cycles that life goes through in one's life. It's about life.'
What is the look like? ' I have never really been too different in my get up in different shows. Come On ! Everyone knows how I look like, just adding a bindi or a different blouse is not going to make too much of a difference. I have done all kinds of role, including a saas bahu saga. Monisha in Sarabai and Simran of Sanjivani were as different from each other as chalk and cheese. If the role demands, I will try to make a few changes, but other than that, I try to be in what I am comfortable with and that is what I am going to do here as well,' chirps the actress, signing off.
We also sign off in the umeed that this show will be different, and introduce us audience to an entirely different flavour of entertainment and wish Rupali all the best.
